Families and individuals in our community go without proper food, shelter, and essential medical care every day due to a variety of factors including low wages, job loss, injuries, illness, age, domestic violence, or divorce. It is our Mission to help the residents in South Brunswick deal with these situations and circumstances to the best of our abilities. Crisis intervention provides immediate assistance for those in need. The Food Pantry, assistance with utility bills, rent and food certificates are some of the services we provide. An application is completed for each recipient and is updated during the year. All funds and food are provided from donations.
